I was an emotional and physical mess when my family insisted I meet with Dr. Jade Wimberley. My family knew I needed help due to my continued drug use for over 6 years. It was getting worse, and I found myself homeless for a number of months. I was scared of the world and still hesitant to ask for help. Dr. Jade worked with me to get in touch with my feelings and was a great companion on my road to recovery. She helped me see that I was worthy of a successful life. She was there for me even during the times when I was very resistant to her help. Not in a bossy way, but with a gentle, demanding presence, she allowed me to discover my confidence over time. It was through my work with Dr. Jade that I found the courage to face myself, my family, and the world when I did not want to. She also changed the way that I now look at my situations and how I look at myself. I am happy to say that I am coming on three years clean and sober on July 17th, 2016 and I am grateful that she was a part of my recovery. An impact was made on my life. I would highly recommend her to a family with an adolescent or young adult who is struggling to make strides in their life. She’ll certainly help change your son’s or daughter’s life if they are willing to accept change. Thank you Dr. Jade for all the help and wisdom that you have shared.
Dr. Jade is a true lifesaver. Yes, in a ‘Toss me a flotation device, I’m drowning!’ kind of way, but also in a ‘Let’s build a boat to cross this wide ocean safely together’ way. She has come to my rescue during acute health crises when the waters got too high and shored up my leaky vessel to make it more seaworthy generally. This is a rare and potent combination–a provider who is good in moments of acute need and in developing preventative measures. I’ve dealt with challenging mental health issues for most of my adult life, balancing a high-powered career and high-octane ambition with difficult neurobiology. Dr. Jade has both provided me with helpful nutritional recommendations and other care guidance directly, as well as pivotal connections to other practitioners within her network. She is a brilliant integrative doctor and a beautiful soul; my life–and health–are better for having known and worked with her. I’d let her captain my ship anytime.
Dr. Wimberley walks what she talks and lives what she believes. This is a true case where her life imitates her art and we all benefit from it.
I was referred to Dr. Jade Wimberley through friends who had received Nutritional IV Treatments from her. I witnessed their increase of energy and I was curious. At the time, I was traveling 250+ days a year and had been for several years for a very stressful job. I would come back to the United States completely exhausted and run down after weeks of non-stop travel. After a consult and some blood work, I met with Dr. Wimberley and began IV treatments. I noticed an immediate benefit of more energy, being more relaxed, and an overall sense of well-being that I hadn’t felt in years. Couple the health benefits with her gentle and non-judgemental approach to really getting to know and understand her clients and their needs, I walked away from my visits with her feeling much better about life. My time with Dr. Wimberley, over the last couple years, has both healed and prepared me physically and mentally to be more capable of tackling my challenges.
“The first reason I picked Dr. Jade Wimberley was for her availability and affordability. When I met her, I really knew that I had lucked out. She was warm, gentle and patient, and took the time to find out my needs. I needed an infusion of Vitamin C along with B vitamins and other minerals, and she tailored the doses according to my needs. She was a pleasure to work with – calm, caring and attentive, but not excessively so. She made sure I was comfortable, and in conversation, she was interesting, interested and well-informed on alternative therapies. I was lucky to have been able to use her services several times for the (all too short!) duration that she was in the Bay Area and happily recommend her!”
“Dr. Jade Wimberley, ND provided great care as well as camaraderie during my cancer treatment. In May 2014, I was diagnosed with Anaplastic Carcinoma Thyroid Cancer, which is an extremely rare cancer, known to be aggressive and resistant to treatment. My family suggested I work with Dr. Jade Wimberley for a regimen of many nutritional infusions to support my immune system and overall health while I underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The time I spent with Dr. Wimberley during these house call visits was certainly an added benefit in my healing process. She encouraged me to believe in the healing power of the body and mind through such a trying time. I am now 18 months out from diagnosis and so far cancer free. This experience left me believing in the need for more integrative healthcare especially with advanced disease states. She certainly helped me achieve good health again in my life.”
“At the age of 59, I sought out Dr. Jade Wimberley’s consultation to help monitor my aging process by interpreting blood tests and boosting my system with vitamin-mineral drips. She is pragmatic, and asked me interesting questions like: ‘How are you sleeping?’ and ‘How are you pooping?’ She is present. Her bedside manner is assuring. Dr. Wimberley is keenly interested in the complexities of the human organism and tends to not rush to a conclusion. She is an advocate of the ancient medical models in which one went to the doctor to maintain one’s health, as opposed to putting it off until the dis-ease was fully developed. Through our consultations, I developed a deeper trust and knowing of my body’s ability to heal itself.”
“In the simplest terms, Dr. Lauren Whittaker changed my life. After 15+ years of chronic pain and working with numerous professionals, I found Dr. Lauren. From our initial meeting, I knew that Dr. Lauren was a perfect fit for me. Professional and compassionate, Dr. Lauren took the time to listen and learn about my experience. During each appointment, she puts me at ease and gives me hope as she works with my structural alignment, muscle tension and emotional struggles with chronic pain. She understands instinctively what my body/mind needs to bring me back into balance and optimal wellness. She encourages my own work with Somatics to release my muscle tension and is able to “listen with her hands” to give me adjustments, release fascia or move trapped energy. Most recently, she’s given me cranial adjustments which allow me to relax my “fight or flight” response and calm my entire body. I am 61 years old and feel better than I have in decades. Prior to working with Dr. Lauren, my focus was always on the pain. I never dreamed I could feel so attuned and at peace with my body/mind. Dr. Lauren has changed my relationship to aging as I better understand what I need to feel comfortable and energized. Dr. Lauren changed my life and I will be forever grateful.”
" I have been a strong advocate of chiropractic care for over fifteen years and have received regular care form several different doctors in the multiple cities in which I have lived over that time. I can't say it enough, Lauren stands out head and shoulders above the rest! My experience with her was absolutely second to none. Her approach, knowledge, and methodology are incredible, but even beyond that, she has a truly intuitive touch and is amazingly attentive to her clients' specific needs. I even had an issue that had persisted for nearly two years with a minimal decrease in symptoms over that time (all with at least monthly visits to my regular chiropractor), and after just two visits with Lauren, I felt not just a noticeable change, but the symptoms had been relieved altogether...something that I honestly had stopped expecting! She is such an asset to her trade, her community, and most importantly, the people fortunate enough to be under her care! Thank you, Lauren!"
"Meeting Lauren and Jade at Lux Wellness has been a delight and gift to my wellness needs. Lauren's knowledge and expertise as a chiropractor has given me the chance to work on solving some persistent injuries. Her gentle nature has allowed me to relax into the process of healing. These gals are going to remain a part of my "team" to help with aging gracefully."
"I was very pleased with my first visit to Lux. Sarah led me to the office very skillfully and Lauren made me feel relaxed and cared for."
"Great initial visit. Really liked Lauren's approach . She definitely knows her stuff and I look forward to working more with her in the near future."
“I consider myself lucky enough to have been treated by some amazing chiropractor's who have been adjusting clients for many years, and in several cases practitioner's whom are also instructor's. I mention these experiences in that they gave me context for appreciating something truly unique that Lauren brings to the table. I am always a little nervous when seeing a new practitioner, but Lauren has a "natural healer" energy that can't be taught, it just comes through so clearly in her touch. The result was that I felt ease in her care that allowed for an adjustment that was way beyond physical structure. On several occasions her care allowed in me an emotional adjustment and release at a level I had not experienced before in chiropractic work. And afterwards I was aware of a new way of moving in my body, an almost beginner's mind sort of movement. To be adjusted by Dr. Lauren was an experience of feeling safe, held and deeply cared for. I recommend her wholeheartedly!”

“Dr. Lauren Whittaker is a loving, gentle and powerful healer. She brings so much joy to the world and I am truly blessed to have been adjusted by her. Her hands are masterful, her words so wise and her heart so loving. I highly recommend Lux Wellness Center to all!”
“Dr . Lauren is more than just a chiropractor, she gives so much love and individual attention to each patient. I felt she personalize my appointments based on my needs and listened to my thoughts and concerns. She understands that chiropractic is more than just back pain; it's about the overall physical, mental, and spiritually health of the person. I'm forever grateful!”
